Lightning is a a solid Drupal starterkit, that enables developers to create great authoring experiences and empower editorial teams. Lightning provides users with a lightweight framework for building working solutions in Drupal.

In our upcoming webinar, we will examine each component of Lightning and demonstrate how to leverage its features in any Drupal build. Topics included will review the use cases for each of the functional areas (layout, media, workflow, and preview) as well as the three development principles (security, automated testing, and integration). We’ll also give a summary of recent findings from the authoring experience summit at BADCamp and how they will affect the development timeline for Lightning.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to significantly cut build time on advanced Drupal 8 projects using Lightning
  • How Lightning improves the accuracy of your development estimates
  • How you can contribute to the Lightning project
  • Our 3 year vision for Lightning
